    Anyone run ball joint spacers? I was cruising Craigslist today and a guy locally makes them. The kit comes with spacers for 2.5-3.0" of lift and hardware also longer bolts and spacers to drop the diff. The kit is like 90 bucks. I would think it would be hard to align after installing them. Too much positive camber. Or am I thinking about this wrong?

    Hahaha that's kinda what I was thinking. I had 4" ifs lift that I got rid of a couple months ago thinking I was done with the older IFS stuff and now I have another one! I've seen a couple around town that have spacers and they look like they're crab walking down the road
